163MastodonMastodon is an American heavy metal band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in early 2000 and composed of bassist Troy Sanders, guitarists Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher and drummer Brann Dailor.

Put this band in the top ten, Bill will give you a holler, and Brent will give you a joint.

The most powerful and progressive hard rock/metal band of the past ten years.

"Blood and Thunder" is too good to be #166.

164The All-American RejectsThe All-American Rejects are an American rock band formed in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1999. The band consists of bassist and lead vocalist, Tyson Ritter, lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Nick Wheeler, rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist, Mike Kennerty, and drummer Chris Gaylor.

The All-American Rejects should definitely deserve a much better place than 98. They have a lot of catchy and chilling songs. Their song is simple yet they have pretty nice solos.

The Rejects have been around for over a decade now and produce hit singles after hit singles.
Move Along, Gives You Hell, It Ends Tonight, Dirty Little Secret, Swing Swing, Beekeeper's Daughter are all spectacular songs.

All American rejects your a nice rack band four me, WE LOVE you good bless..

Same best band and have been forever

165A Perfect Circle

Should be much higher on the charts

While Tool brought the thought-evoking metal power, A Perfect Circle balanced the MJK equation with softer, more emotionally charged songs. Both Tool and APC have extremely skilled artists, that much is evident by even a cursory listen. I thought this would be higher on the list.

APC is one of the sole beautiful rock bands out there. Their songs have a feminine touch to them that make them unique and chilling.

170Crown the Empire

If you like melodic post-hardcore with elements of metalcore, this band is for you (only their old stuff, though. Their newest album, Retrograde, is quite a soft album).

Great band, just started listening to them and they're definitely worth listening to

171The Lonely Island

You Gotta Admit The Lonely Island Songs Are Great! I Think They Deserve A Higher Rating! Their Songs Are Really Fun To Listen To!

Lonely Island is a comedy group, but whatever

172OpethOpeth is a Swedish progressive death metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990. Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's only founding member and primary driving force throughout the years. Along with Edge of more.

173th is way to low for this pioneers from Sweden. 20 years on tour and still going strong, without forgetting to invent themselves every new record. From good old grunt and scream in the early days to pinkfloyd yes on the latest records. One of the best live shows I've ever seen, and they don't need lights, fireworks, striptease, facepaint or other crap that distracts the essential part; playing music.

175KamelotKamelot is an American power metal band from Tampa, Florida, formed by Thomas Youngblood and Richard Warner in 1991. The Norwegian vocalist Roy Khan joined for the album Siége Perilous, and shared songwriting credit with Youngblood until his departure in April 2011. On June 22, 2012, Youngblood announced more.
